, really, president obama state what his position is, which honestly everyone already knows and house speaker john boehner stated what his feeling is on dealing with the fiscal cliff. and that sort of perfunctory here's my position sort of gave way to a back and forth between these two leaders. nothing was settled, but the tone was reportedly good and both republicans and democrats in the room seemed aware this would come down to dealing with tax reform and entitlement reform, and the source told me when the president raised the issue of increasing revenue, there was no, "no, we're not going to do that" from republicans, and when republicans talked about entitlement reform, the president agreed that was something that has to be done. >> well, it sounds good, but do you think when it comes down to the brass tacks both sides are actually ready to bend a bit? >> reporter: i think they're ready to bend than they were going into that whole debacle that was the debt situation. there are some specifics that need to be sorted out for sure, exactly how to raise revenue. as you know, democrats

. the state department under a brand new president obama in 2009 authorized the great l.a. latin fusion band to go tour burma. a sort of ambassadors for u.s. culture in that part of the world. burma has only finally ended military rule there as of last year. after president obama makes his visit there this weekend, we have now learned we're going to be sending another american musical act to follow up the president's trip. this time it's jason mraz. he's scheduled to play a gig december 16th. he's going to be playing outdoors free of charge. even though we expect democrats and republicans to fight over everything these days, the associated press notes that mitch mcconnell has for a long time taken a special interest in burma as a senator. he has not held back in praising president obama for taking this big historic trip to that once totally-closed country. president obama on this trip is due to meet with the japanese prime minister. in the midst of those countries fighting over who controls some islands. the whole trip to asia comes in the midst of a flairup between israel and gaza. we don't
seminar is being held at the state capital. >> republican leaders warned the obama administration is using mind control to manipulate all of us. the the forum was all caught on camera. >> how psyched was the guy who was asked to make that graphic for that segment. we're going to need a graphic with president obama on it. and since he's president, maybe throw in an american flag. what's the theme? it's about mind control. so give us something with president obama and a flag and the words "mind control" and whatever other imagery might get the idea across at a glance. ama amazing. the story was based on this video inside a four-hour long seminar conducted by the republican caucus. republicans are the majority in the state and they convened this four-hour event for republican senators to learn about how president obama was using cold war era mind control techniques to trick americans into turning ourselves over to the united nations for, you know, one world government and enslavement. if you want some historical perspective, there's stalin and then there's president obama. the results at the
. and today was a big day. today was the day that states were supposed to let the obama administration know whether or not they would be forming their own health insurance exchanges. here we go. it's a component to the law. it will allow households and small businesses shop for private insurance. and many states have dragged their feet on the deadline, perhaps expecting a different outcome to the presidential election. they requested an extension, states now have until mid-december to make their decision. if a state chooses not to set up an exchange, it can either share responsibility with the federal government or let the fed's handle it completely in their state. you'd think the conservative governors around the country would denounce the idea because of federal control that they would want to set up their own state exchange. think again. >> scott walker decided to let the federal government implement exchanges. >> there's the government takeover. but it was walker who made the decision. and you know what, he's not alone. bob mcdonald of virginia, why would he do that? he's letting the fe

situation. president obama talked to the leaders of israel and egypt and we are told secretary of state clinton has been working the phones trying to muster international pressure to diffuse the situation rockets have been flying both ways. that was an israeli missile strike right there in gaza. israel is aiming at terrorist targets and that's what it looks and sounds like from a distance. here it is up close during an interview with ani israeli and palestinian who are in the thick of it. >> let me jump in there, mohammed. when you hear him describe the situation where he is, what goes through your mind? >> sorry. that is one thing. carry on with your question.

directly from the white house and probably not the secretary of state. lou: president obama and acknowledging exactly that. the white house request. petraeus testimony creates a number of troubling questions. one, he knew immediately that he was a terrorist attack. just a few days later on the 14th of september before the intelligence committee. frankly, at least the statements and most members of that committee to examine with the white house line on an internet video, wich the president himself s pointed to, disavowing that very message, that very talking point from the first 24 hours. >> clearly he has amended his statement. the first statement, you know, said that he purprtedly written and sent from cia out al qaeda was suspected. the words were changed to extremists suspected or indications of extremists. lou: he amended his statement. who is the heat? >> patraeus appears to -- the seventh from petraeus appears to be amended. what he did stay based on th news reporting is that the statement that was sent out, the riding said katie suspected. the change was indications o
. now the president obama has the gall to float the name as possible secretary of state. the name of the person who is the actual vehicle used to misinform the american people during this crisis and the dishonesty reflect individual of this is a little bit breathtaki breathtaking. >> congressman rohrabacher the president might nominate susan rice to replace secretary hillary clinton over her talking points in the attack and i spoke with congressman dana rohrabacher earlier, listen. appreciate you being with us. you said that president obama lied to the american people in the aftermath of the benghazi attacks. what are you saying he lied about and what evidence do you actually have that he lied? >> we have all kinds, and everybody in the country heard him and people speaking for him, but the president as well, talking about movie rage as being by a crowd that got out of control and killed ambassador and three other diplomatic personnel and before the united nations over and over again making reference to movie rage, and this is to everyone who was listening to the show tonight and
state department officials from the obama and george w. bush administration's discuss public diplomacy in a tough budget in vermont. the discuss the effectiveness of student exchange programs and government-backed broadcasting outlets, like "voice of america." the george washington school of international affairs hosted this event tuesday. this is an hour and 45 minutes. >> that is public diplomacy in action. [laughter] i'm a professor here at gw and the director of the institute for public policy and global communication. you can find us on twitter @ip dgc. we're also on facebook. we're hosting a conversation on twitter about this event,, hashtag ipdgc. what i will do to get as a rolling here is give a brief introduction and bio for our great panel here, and then get going into the discussion. we have a great -- with a lot of interesting people in the room. we need to leave time for discussion. first we have james glassman. executive director of the george w. bush institute. after a long career in journalism, he served as undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs
obama didn't know. oh, and dimension the state department was watching this unfold in real time? when president obama in his absurd press conference then tried to portray himself as coming to the defense of a damsel in distress, susan rice, saying, quote, republicans should come after me. at that moment, he stumbled into a deeper and more damaging truth than he realized because republicans are rightly going after you, mr. president, because the evidence is mounting that you and your administration knowingly and willfully misled the american people on the benghazi massacre and lying to the american people, perhaps in order to get re-elected. that's a serious offense. joining me with reaction, texas congressman mike conoway, in the closed-door meeting with general petraeus and the author of a brand-new book, a host of war stories. oliver north is here. bring us inside the room. what happened today? >> general petraeus came to clarify some of the statements he made in the september 14 briefing. first, let me make sure we acknowledge the heroic activities of the military forces. we need t
states. that's a mandate. it's unthinkable that any candidate can win anywhere close to that. obama won a pretty impressive victory even without a serious third party candidate, he did not get 51% of the popular vote. he won 26 states to romney's 24 states. we'll see time after time very, very close elections. we need to rethink the negotiations of mandates and say this person won the presidency. they need to go forward with that agenda. >> what about the republicans? are they going to do a big rethink here? >> yes, and more than one. it was interesting that the republican governors happened to be meeting this week in las vegas when this news about the interesting comments that romney made to his donors that we just saw and the republican governors, bobby jindal of louisiana did not miss five seconds before they really denounced what romney was saying. the republicans have a lot of things to think about, not of which is their growing problem with hispanic voters. that is the big growing group in this country. republicans are still largely a party of white people and older white people.
of staff to president obama at the white house, quote, and this is from the e-mail, e-mail or call when you can with suggestions. the e-mail stated, quote, the white house needs to focus on finalizing the loan guarantee for what would be the largest solar thermal project in the world. bright source energy's project was conditionally approved more than a year ago and is in the final stages of being completed. we need a commitment from the white house for loan closure by march 18th. at house energy and commerce subcommittee meeting last may, chairman jim jordan said to woolard, quote, you are asking the guy who is a judge of making the final decision to proofread and e-mail your chairman was going to send to the white house chief of staff and you say there is no political involvement? in another coincidence or not, the loan received final approval in may of 2011 a month after they reviewed the proofreading request which he reviewed as the e-mails can be seen from his personal account, his personal e-mail account, not his department of energy account. the draft e-mails served, after all it is
with america's immediate neighbors. last year the obama administration blocked an extension to the keystone excel pipeline that would help deliver oil from canada's tar sands, eyely controversy bull productive sands to the gulf of mexico. largely on environmental grounds. now the state department is reviewing the pipeline route. the pipeline will likely get approval and get built. either way, the energy relationship between the u.s. and canada will continue to grow. and while president obama meets with his newly elected mexican counter part this month, a major topic will be obama's goil goal for immigration reform. it's a domestic issue with regional economic implications for both the united states and mexico. so president obama has got a lot to think about. joining me now is fareed zakaria. he is host of "gps." you understand the economy and foreign affairs. let's talk about europe first of all. you get the impression that china was the biggest economic threat to the united states. but if europe doesn't get its act together, the trade between europe and the u.s. is greater. should the pres

, especially in the senate, the reelection of president barack obama, and also at the state level, where we have seen a number of states reclaim democratic chambers, dozens and dozens of more democratic legislators coming back into the force. what we see here is the tea party is dwindling. i live in texas. so the tea party is alive and well in texas. but we're just seeing the diminished movement of what was all the rage in 2010. and we thought was going to rage on for another couple of years. >> now the tea party made its impact by pushing republicans to the far right, so far that it proved nearly impossible for mitt romney to find his way back in time for the election. so what in your opinion will the republican of 2014 or 2016 have to be in terms of ideas and policy positions? >> well, and we've seen that struggle right now, especially with jeb bush, for example. the moderate republicans, let's call them the chamber of commerce republicans trying to move back to the center, and trying to go back to an era of, say, bush-style policy, either bush one or bush two. and by that, trying to cour
law regulates them too tightly denying states the flexibility to set up exchanges their way. many of them hoped they'd never have to make the call, but now that president obama has been re-elected the future of health care reform is more certain leaving some states scrambling. states who plan on building exchanges must opt in or out of the exchanges by december 14, along with blueprints for the project. states who plan to partner with the federal government have until february to give their notice. sylvia hall, "n.b.r.," washington. >> susie: next week on "n.b.r.," we'll have more on health care and look at which stocks will be the winners and losers as companies gear up for president obama's health care insurance mandate. how much do retailers benefit by opening early for those black friday sales? we'll find out if longer hours add up to bigger profits. and we look at ways investors are putting their money to work to better their communities. >> tom: with 45 days before the end of the year, lawmakers say they will speed up their negotiations over avoiding the fiscal cliff. is the
